On tap at Trinity Brewing Company's Barleywine day this past saturday. Translucent through the glass a very beautiful amber color, a finger and a half head that goes away quickly and leaves minimal lacing. The smell is that of fruit, sugar, maybe a little wood. The taste is the same too, but with a little bread on the tail end. Goes down smooth, and very drinkable. Maybe i hadnt had enough to eat/drink beforehand, but this hit a little harder than what i thought. To be honest this is my very first barleywine so i have no prejudices or anything and maybe i am completely wrong about it, but if this is what barleywines taste like then i am a very strong believer because this thing is delicious!

12 ounce bottle poured into snifter.
A: pours a wonderful deep amber / ruby red color with about a finger of nice thick, tan head. this fads to a fair ring around the glass, with some lingering in the center.
S: upfront, I get a malty sweetness with dark fruits like plums a little bit of hop, but not much.
T: I get a sweetness and a breadyness from the malt initially, then some fruits, figs, and a bit of resinous hop character at the end.
M: pretty good mouthfeel, good carbonation.
O: i havent had a whole lot of barleywines (even less english barleywines) so im certainly a bit out of my element in regards to this beers representation of the style. this is based more on my general opinions. a pretty good beer, though. I wouldn't ever turn one down.

A: Dark brown filtered with lots of carbonation, even bubbles cling to the inside of the glass. There are 2 fingers of creamy beige head.
S: Malt, toffee, butter scotch, crème brulee, apple candy.
T: Butter scotch, candy, alcohol on the end, caramelized sugar like crème brulee, apple candy comes in as well.
M: Thick syrupy body is balanced by the heavy carbonation so much so that its smooth with a light bitter aftertaste.
O: Considered a standard by many in the beer world for a Barleywine, I was glad to finally find this on the east coast at Brawley’s Beverage in Charlotte. Drank in Boca Raton July 12th, 2014.
